Jacob Decker is a PI. His friend Chace (Breathe) has called him on a case. He is back in Gnaw Bone but the last thing he expected was to meet his best friend after 9 yrs and wanting more from her. It doesn't matter that she may be seeing someone or that she has changed in the years he's been gone.
"Emme. The new, beautiful, stylish Emme"
He knows he wants to rekindle their friendship and so much more.
“So, summin’ up, you got until Sunday to get your head together about McFarland. On Sunday, you scrape him off. On Sunday night, the boys are gone, you learn the true meaning of me callin’ you ‘baby.’ ”
When Jacob is faced with the case and there is suspicion of Emme being involved, he won't rest until her name is cleared.
Emme can't believe that Jacob is back in her life. He was her best friend but when Jacob broke up with his girlfriend, he also cut ties to Emme, breaking her heart in the process. As a parting gift, she gave him a kaleidoscope, if only he had just turned the dial.
“This is cool, having this back. Having you back. Thanks for making it easy and taking us right back to where we left off.”
Emme does have a past that has makes it hard for her to open up and Jacob could be the only one who can make it happen.
This book as with all the Colorado books have suspense, an awesome alpha, great cameos from other lovable characters (Lee- I love you man!!) and an awesome great posse.
Emme was a strong woman. She is carrying some trauma from a prior experiences and it's painful to read how this has affected her life. She is truly a nice person and she deserves happiness.
Jacob doesn't play games. Once he realizes that he had wasted too long to get Emme back into his life, there is nothing to stop him. He is a man on a mission and it doesn't hurt that he owns a dog.
“Met you twelve years ago and we’re just gettin’ here. I don’t call that fast. I call that a waste of fuckin’ time I’m about to rectify.”
I never get tired of reading about these characters and their lives. Is also extremely rewarding to read where the couples of prior books lives are at and that their love for each other is only stronger.
“I really, really, really like you, Jacob Decker,”
